No Added Sugar, No Grains, Easy and Amazing Banana Bread

Makes 1 loaf

Ingredients:

4 very ripe bananas, mashed

1/3 cup coconut oil or grass-fed butter, melted

4 free-range eggs

1tsp vanilla

1 ½ tsp cinnamon

½ cup organic coconut flour (do not substitute another flour – it will not work)

1 heaping tsp baking soda

¼ tsp salt

optional add-ins: 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips, walnuts, pecans, slivered almonds, raisins, etc.

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Throw everything together in a medium bowl and mix until combined. Pour into a lightly greased (use coconut oil or butter for greasing) bread pan and bake for about 45 minutes or until center is set and top is golden. Enjoy!

*Your bananas should be extremely brown, almost to the point when you would throw them away or freeze them. If they are not overly ripe, your bread will not be as sweet and probably not taste as good. If you are using non-ripe bananas, you should add about a 1/3 cup of maple syrup to the batter.

**This is a wonderful place to buy organic coconut flour. The coconut flour may seem a little on the expensive side if you are used to regular white flour, but you never need a lot of coconut flour in recipes because it soaks up a lot of liquid. Most recipes only call for a ½ cup or less of coconut flour so a bag will last a really long time! Also, you CANNOT substitute coconut flour for other flours and vise versa.
